Argentina - Culture
The people of Argentina are very social and the most common greeting is to kiss both cheeks. It is not uncommon for people to touch whilst in conversation and maintaining eye contact is very important. Evening meals are often very late, especially by North American standards. It is rare for dinner to be served before 21:00. While the major cities are quite fashion forward, clothing does not have to be very formal, but should be relatively conservative.
Spanish is the official language of Argentina, however, English is widely spoken in many parts of the country. French and German are also spoken, but in a lesser capacity.
The majority of Argentina’s population (more than 90%) follow the Roman Catholic religion. A further 2% of the population identify as Protestant and there Muslim and Jewish minorities.
